From primers to powders to gels, colorless makeup products are an absolute necessity to have in your makeup collection in order for your look to be perfected and polished. They are essential for both prepping and finishing off a makeup application and are hassle-free, since the lack of color allows for a less precise application–perfect for those of us who are always in a rush. Here are some must-have colorless makeup products that you need in your life right now.
Colorless powder: A truly translucent powder is an absolute must-have for your makeup stash. Just like a regular powder, it works to set your makeup so it stays in place. However, the fact that it is colorless will ensure that your foundation color doesn’t change upon application or throughout the day.
Eyeshadow primer: Eyeshadow primers, which most often dry clear but also come in a variety of colors, are essential for prolonging the wear of your eyeshadows. Just a dab of this colorless product and your shadows will appear more vibrant, and if you apply more smoothly, the design will stay put all day long.
Clear brow gel: For those moments when our brows just don’t want to cooperate, brow gel is a lifesaver. Brow gels come in a variety of styles–clear, tinted, fibered. Swiping a bit of a clear brow gel through your brows and combing the hairs into place after filling them in will pull your whole look together. They are even perfect for the days when you are feeling a bit lazy, but still want to look polished. Applying some to bare brows will make them appear fuller and more defined.
Colorless lip liner: You are probably thinking how it is possible for colorless lip liner to actually exist. It does, and it is very amazing. A colorless lip liner primes your lips for lipstick application and ‘defines’ the edges, preventing color from bleeding. What you get is longer lasting lipstick that goes on smooth without the hassle of trying to perfectly trace your lips with a colored liner.
Makeup finishers: These products are usually clear, lightweight, pressed silicone gels that are applied with a sponge in a patting motion. They are perfect for mattifying your face, reducing the appearance of pores, prolonging the wear of foundation and freshening up your makeup after a long day.
